    Great present!

    A friend of mine, that knows my passion for woodworking has given me a wonderful unexpected surprise.

    He just came in and said this is for you! handing me a parcel.

    And look what was inside!!

    An Adria dovetail saw and another Adria tenon saw.

    He explained that the present was in correspondence with a favour I made him some years ago that I don't even remember!

    Wow. Those are beautiful. A good deed repaid, even if not remembered. Sounds like a good friend to have.
